74-Year-Old Maye Musk, Becomes The Oldest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover Model


Maye Musk, the 74-year-old mom of Elon Musk, made a mark for herself by becoming the oldest model to feature on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover.

Musk, a dietician and a model, made the cover alongside Kim Kardashian, singer Ciara, and musician Yumi No.

In a video released by Sports Illustrated, she said that if she thought that she could be a swimsuit model for SI, people would have locked her away as a crazy lady. And now, here she is!

MJ Day, SI Swimsuit’s editor-in-chief said that she was proud of the lineup of women that was featured on the cover of the magazine.

“The journey we’ve been on—to break out of the mold the world put us in—may sound familiar. It’s certainly familiar to the women we’ve chosen to be our cover models: Maye, Ciara, Yumi, Kim,” – she said.

Maye added that she wants to let people know that women in their 70s are gorgeous.

“I think women of all ages . . . they’re scared of aging, and they’re scared they won’t look good in a swimsuit. So now you know that I’m setting an example so women can walk freely in swimsuits and not worry about it.” – she concluded.
